Under the sea - under construction.

I was trying to come up with a sea-themed ATC last night. Couldn't figure out what to do for plants, any ideas?? I've versamarked (can you use that as a verb?) some leaves on the card, but they are not right at all, you can sort of see them if you look closely ...what to do, what to do!?

Ok, here's my pink page (also see a post below about recycling a page). I added my journalling on a tag, you can see the fibers but the tag is hidden. The journalling tells the story about my DD having a bath one night and going beserk afterwards, running, dancing, screaming and laughing. Then all of a sudden she walked to the camera and looked right at it. Total peace.

Bored. Will challenge you. / Tylsää, haastan teidät...

LOL, well I'm not really bored, but it's getting a little akward to see that there are people visiting and never leaving a comment so I have not idea who you all are!!

So, I'm gonna challenge you to create something that has PINK in it, use your fav media, scan or photograph your work, post it online and leave your link in the comments. Come on, humour me :)


Mullon tylsää, tai melkein ainakin (eikä tämä mitenkään liity neljään siideriin jotka join äsken yhtä monella terassilla). Laskuri tuolla sivun alareunassa näyttää, että kyllä täällä joku käy, mutta kommentteja ei juuri kukaan jätä, joten tässä tulee haaste: luo jotain jossa on pinkkiä (tai vaaleanpunaista :)), kuvaa työsi, postaa se nettiin ja jätä linkki kommenttina tähän viestiin. Joohan?

Recycling a page.

I'm back home -- alone. DH and DD are spending two more days on the countryside :) Started to sort out stuff and found this page I made for a friendly competition on one of the lists I participate in; everyone scrapped the same photo.

I already found a photo to replace the current one so stop by later to see how the page looks now.

Supplies: CS Bazzill; PP DCWV, distress ink Ranger; rub-on letters Making Memories, buttons and fibers unknown Oh and rauha = peace.


Getting ready for Midsummer.

I'm off for a few days, will take DD to in-laws' summer house to enjoy the Midsummer.
Back on Sunday, with new work to post!


Using a ready-made kit.

When I noticed Creating Keepsakes was selling a nifty little album with premade embellishments, I ordered two just to see what they were like. The albums are cool, but I wasn't too keen on all the premade stuff.

Last night I was looking at the stuff again, trying to decide if I should keep it or sell it online and decided to give it a go. Here's the first page, DD making silly faces in a German train :)

Something completely different.

I'm not into bright colours really, but hey, a girl can try?

The title says "ice cream", add a voice effect of a tired 4.5-year-old and you got it :)

Supplies: CS Bazzill, PP Making memories, letter stamps Ma Vinci, ink Versamark.


Santra and the Boys.

Here's the layout I did with the photo of my grandmom and her two sons. I scanned and printed the photo out, the lo is 12 x 12.

My journalling is written on a tag and hidden, you can see a little circle clip that holds it in place behind the lo.

Journalling: Santra and her two sons in 1921, my uncle and dad, a sweet little boy at 4 years of age. I don't know what their life was like really, their dad worked hard as a farmer and the boys must have helped him. When my dad died in 1982, I was 15 and going through the worst teenager angst. I was sad and hated him for not giving me a chance to get to know him as a person. Now that I would love to hear about his thoughts and feelings, he's gone, as is pretty much everyone else. That is one of the reasons I'm sharing my memories with you, my DD, to make sure you know how I feel and what I think. I love you today, and forever.

Supplies: CS Bazzill, PP and sticker letters Basic Grey, other small stuff unknown.

My dad.

This is a picture of my grandmom, whom I never met, and her two sons. The cute little boy with blonde hair is my dad. The photo was taken in 1921 and for years my sister and I thought it had been lost for good, until last week she found it! Needless to say it has been scanned in and printed out and the files have been burned on to a cd. I'm working on a layout on this one as well as on a series of ATCs so please stay tuned. It's my dad!!

L could also be for Learning

But it's not gonna be, lol. However, I did learn yesterday that even if you cover a notebook with thick mulberry paper, the original cover will show if it is red and swirly :)

Should L be for Lazy or Laundry?

We'll see soon, I hope. Or maybe it should be for laughter?
